Treatment for Tear Troughs and Thin Undereye Skin?
I went to a doctor out of town for correction of my tear troughs, he told me that since I had such thin skin underneath my eyes, Restylane might not work well, and find somewhere closer to home in case of complications. Now I'm wondering if a filler or fat grafting would never be able to fix it, and if I have to live the rest of my life looking tired and older than my actual age? Also I've heard of laser treatment that thickens the skin underneath the eye. Is that really safe, and if so, what is it actually called?
